I’d love to “measure” a knitted or crocheted scarf. This could be measured in length, width, area, or even number of stitches.
1. Crocheted/Knitted Scarf
2. Number of Loops/Stitches
3. I guess the unit would be 1 stitch, though you could look at scale of a centimeter being equivalent to a certain number of stitches if you want to get more complicated.
4. I would love to see students expanding their thinking via multiplicative reasoning to talk about how a longer scarf has more stitches – how many more, etc…
